Bed and Breakfast


front_flower_beds

 

The front of the house looks amazing when in bloom of the lavender is highlighting the daylilies. 

However,

change almost always takes place here at one time or another and for one reason or another.

The front flower bed was moved,

15 feet back from the driveway.

In order,

to accommodate parking for our Bed and Breakfast guests.

The French Gardener built me a wooden frame,

and I took a small clip off each daylily, then moved the lavender and bulbs.

 We  He spread gravel with the wheelbarrow for 3 days.

I don’t know why we didn’t think we had enough.

We had so much gravel left over we edged both sides of the driveway,

extra_gravel

 

put gravel under the picnic area we built off the Confederation Trail for public use.

We even,

made a stone walkway from the trail to our back picnic area.

This is our bridge and path from the Confederation Trail.

We still have a lot left over and we are planning what to do with it next.  Actually I’m doing the planning my French Gardener is rolling his eyes because I simply suggested we had a lot left over what could we  do with it. 

I stopped to check out the sedum,

doesn’t it look nice in front of the Rhododendron?

I made a few tablescapes.

Invited my grandchildren to play in the dirt and made,

fairy_bridge

another fairy garden.  This one has a bridge over the water and moss so the fairies have a smooth landing pad.

Well that was my week in review, oh I almost forgot to mention I met a kindred spirit this week and found out that we share a lot of the same likes.

 I figure though, if you take the time to get to know most folks you would find they have a lot in common. 

Have a wonderful weekend, and to my Canadian friends and family,

god_bless

Happy Thanksgiving,

Cindy

What do you do when you are short a potato or two?  This past week things have been slowing down in the Hospitality business so I have had a little more time on my hands to do a few other things like cook
Extra lean hamburg was on sale this past week at Sobey’s and my daughter Victoria told me she would bring me over some of their hamburg from their last kill if I made her a Shepard’s Pie for supper when I was making one for us. Sounds like a good deal to me, only I ran out of potatoes.  Instead of running off to the store to purchase more, I did what the kids say I’m always doing….”changing the recipe again”.

Here is Victoria’s Shepard’s Pie with perogies instead of potatoes.  You can see where about I ran out of potatoes.  I added mozzerella cheese to the top of it just in case I got a complaint.  I figured I could back up my loss with a protein excuse.

With a fresh loaf of bread who would complain?

I so love my bread maker.  So much that we had to get a second one to keep up with the Bed and Breakfast guests.
Sure I can make bread from scratch, but why go to the bother unless it is raisin bread, yum.

Life sure has been busy over the past month with a wedding and funeral all in the same week.  Stress has been high and sleep has been scarce.  I managed to get a few things done like put my cell phone number on the do not call list and get the book listing finished not on schedule and handed in.  Time to breath, relax, reflect and take a short road trip just to  get away from it all for another short time.

Take time for yourself, no one else will…
